Unambitious porn/sci-fi misses the mark
14 May 2015 | by lor_See all my reviews

I finally caught up with this '70s artifact, famous back then and forgotten today, and was surprised at the misinformation from prior reviewers in IMDb. They must have vivid imaginations, because the actual film is a pedestrian effort that fails to lift off the ground.

Alpha Blue Archives print bears the retitling: Ms. Magnificent, evidently the result of being sued by those pesky DC folks. Apparently pornographers in the Golden Age had not discovered the legal loophole which allows their current descendants to crank out an endless (and pointless) series of crappy ripoffs under the rubric of Parody. I guess what's good for Alex Braun was not good for papa Lasse.

Censorship is interesting in this case: whenever anyone says Superwoman on the soundtrack it is not bleeped but replaced with a silent pause; similarly the S on Supewoman's superhero costume is blacked out by fuzzy squiggling drawn directly on the celluloid. The hardcore porn content, however, seems fairly intact. Go figure.

Film is easily stolen by Jese St. James as the megalomaniac villainess Kreeta Borgia, heading back to Earth with her crew of sexy outer space folk (Jesse Adams, Sharon Kane, Starr Wood and the forgettable (I know I did) Vernon von Bergdorfe, in a cheap spaceship powered by two Chrysler hemis.

In something of a casting switch, our super-heroine Desiree Cousteau has alter ego Linda, the editor of the L.A. Times (!) while Lois is played by delectable Holly McCall. Clark is inevitably Mike Horner, then as now one of the few porn actors who can act. Jesie at one point makes fun of their names presciently for TV fans: "Lois & Clark, are you in the expedition business?". Horner has a dumb line later, going whew and saying "Wow, was that a close encounter", and then apologizing for the bad line, when the real blame rests upon screenwriter John Finegold, who made a career of penning poor porn comedies before entering the U.S. Senate (just kidding).

Sci-fi content is negligible, but star Cousteau generates one honest laugh when she awkwardly almost keels over on landing in an apartment -her clumsiness left in the final print. Jese uses a special 14-inch dildo on her supposedly modeled after Linda's kidnapped boyfriend John (nondescript and hardly that well-endowed Larry Davis, who one IMDb klutz confused with John Holmes no less).

Sort of highlight is Jese fisting Sharon Kane, which is shown only in medium shot with the expected closeups of the since taboo act missing, either censored or never shot.

Film's premise, decent cast and potential huge sci-fi fan-base make hack Joe Sherman's inability to run with the material all the more disappointing.
